Love this!

I've been using this for a few weeks and it's great. Needed to find my method to suit my tapered afro - I found my hair turns out better if it's slightly damp, rather than wet. Gives a great hold, not as strong as Avocado Kokum Curl Defining Smoothie, but still very good. Both products smell lovely too.

Belinda Hegarty
Excellent product

Love this product, great slip, smells gorgeous. Reduces frizz and defines curls. Delivered on time. Very happy.

Loving it

I haven't really let my hair grow in over 20 years. Due to the events of this year, I decided it was time to let them grow wild again. As I have fairly curly hair I definitely needed some kind of product to avoid growing a bush on my head, and I have to say that this product is absolutely fantastic! It was recommended by a fellow curly hair friend and I am absolutely loving it: creates great curls, with a minimum amounts and lasts until the next wash... I think I will keep my hair growing and longer for a while longer.

Great definition!!

I have used this product on a braid out and it came out lovely! You do need quite wet or damp hair as it's quite sticky (I don't mind this)
It works great on edges too, little bit goes a long way and lasts all day.
I also tried it on dry hair through the week as a little refresher (because I don't always like re-wetting my hair) and used a very tiny bit on ends and length of hair and came out nice and defined next day, no flakes! Defo part of staples now!
